  17. 17. U.S. NSES & Scottish CFE NSES 9-12 ES: The origin of the universe remains one of the greatest questions in science. The “big bang” theory places the origin between 10 and 20 billion years ago, when the universe began in a hot dense state; according to this theory, the universe has been expanding ever since. CFE LVL 4: I can apply my knowledge of electromagnetic waves and their detection to explain how images and information from space help us understand the structure of the Universe and how it has changed over time.
